Caitlyn Jenner is joining the cast of Amazon’s Transparent, and will begin filming scenes next week, says creator and executive producer Jill Soloway. The casting was announced by Soloway in an interview with the AP at Saturday’s GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles.
“We are all part of the same community,” Soloway told the AP. “A lot of the transwomen who work on our show are also in her show I am Cait,” Soloway said. “Lots of crossover. Lots of friends.” Soloway wouldn’t disclose information about Jenner’s character, who’ll appear on the upcoming third season of the streaming series.
E’s I Am Cait tied with TLC’s I Am Jazz as Outstanding Reality Program at Saturday’s GLAADs. Transparent, which stars Jeffrey Tambor as the transgender Maura Pfefferman, was named Outstanding Comedy Series.
